Aseptic acetabular loosening is one of the most common complications of primary hip arthroplasty Its treatment is possible in the volume of replacement of only the endoprosthesis cup with the preservation of a stable correctly oriented femoral component. The sequence of actions consists of provision of access to the acetabulum component and its replacement, after which the necessary offset is selected by changing the size of the head and installing a new pair of friction. Currently, the vast majority of the installed heads during the primary and revision hip replacement have a standard size forthe cone of the femoral component 12/14mm. According to the observations, in 3% of cases, there are femoral components with non-standard cone sizes 11/13 mm, usually established 7-8 years ago. The absence of heads forthe necessary cone leads to the need to replace the stable correctly oriented femoral component, which is accompanied by an increase in the time of intervention, the volume of intraoperative blood loss and the risk of intraopera-tive peri-prosthetic fracture. We represent the clinical case of a 75-year-old patient with a dislocation of the acetabular component and a stable correctly oriented femoral component, which during the audit intervention due to the lack of heads for an irregular cone size, total replacement of the components was made.
